Fair play for trying to generate some money

but seriously who the fuck is going to go 

Woah hang on , weeks ago a few of us started to go the hotel on matchdays . Around 6 of us ; usually turning up for the second half ( bit like London away days).

Plenty of room , table service . Ok we have to shout at each other  but it is putting cash into the hotel.

Took advantage of the buy one get one half price meal deals.

Bumped elbows with Shazza n Emma.

No riff raff.

Hope last night was a success , Ashburner St and Mr Smith went ( seperate tables ) .

I know Miss Speak ( yes please , cracking rack).

Asked where the rest of us were . But will get full report on the evening later today.

Remember every bit helps the club at the moment.

Like I said fair play to the club but under current restrictions can’t see the appeal

i can go watching boro have a pint & stand with my mates the idea of sitting on different tables to my mates ain’t for me, ok if I lived closer probably take the lad in but it would work out costly

However if Emma is about I might be tempted

Agree, it’s bad enough paying to watch it on ifollow, let alone pay even more to watch it on someone else’s tv.

Is the football juggernaut just going to carry on through this second lockdown or are they going to throw another season into disarray now?

It’ll carry on without fans being in there. I’ve written this season off in terms of getting in grounds

Me too I've no hope we'll be back in until next season really, until vaccine is in full circulation. But if we have a "proper" lockdown again that should really mean the football stops again like last time and if it does (I know its barely a secondary concern in the grand scheme) that totally shafts the already packed calendar built around Euros next summer and 2021/22 starting on time.

On the subject of fans back in, I can picture the phased return, I can picture full home crowds but for some reason I really struggle to picture a time when we can say "heres 5,000 away tickets, travel the country, enjoy!". Hope I'm massively wrong, as soon as we're allowed full stadiums again, away fans should be allowed as normal too.

Not arsed about the season now

buy them England games another story 

I've seen UEFA starting to tout the idea of reorganising it depending on how countries are doing. Fuck knows where they could put the England games if Wembley gets taken away. Also said it looks very possible Baku, St Petersburg and Bilbao will lose their games too.as struggling to sell tickets.

Glad the new UEFA bloke has said a tournament all across Europe was a bad idea, it's a nightmare to plan for.

"So, any volunteers to give up their England Wembley tickets to fit you into Munichs ground instead?"

"No"

"Damn"

I didnt realise they'd been selling tickets.  There's little chance of it being a normal fan attended tournament, the only hope would probably be the "best/safest" nation nearer the time hosts all the games.  Even then the restrictions on who can attend from across Europe from the worst Covid countries would be a nightmare.  Can only see it being behind closed doors given how long it would take to organise ticket sales effectively.

Yeah theyve said they're planning for all eventualities, full stadiums, half full, empty, all the venues, none of the venues, moving it all to one country etc etc.

8 months out, I do find it very hard to picture 90,000 at Wembley or 70,000 at Rome, Munich etc. Spent a fucking fortune on this tournament though, so covid can fuck off.

They dont give a fuck in eastern europe, think it's full in Serbian games as well! 🤣

Saw this earlier from the cake tin in NZ at weekend (I dont follow Durham or whoever posted the photo from the rugby, btw)

 

Erm, fake news. That wasn't a shot from ALW's concert to test restrictions, thats from before lockdown. it also wasn't from AWs night. For ALW's test concert you had an invite, had to have a test, and only two people from the same household together. 

Twitter is a funny old thing.

I intended to post the photo from NZ, not the Wenger thing.

There was one with about 180,000 signatures, wasn’t there?

Yes, 199,740 signatures.  The 13,000 seems to be the number of people that took part in a survey, stating things like how they would travel to games, if they had a season ticket etc.
